We enjoyed the circuit walk 2 days ago in good weather - two of us in our late 60s plus our daughter and her husband. As others say, if you're reasonably fit, there are no reasons not to give it a go. For older walkers...More

This is an easy walk out to Grassy Cape but then a good climb up to Flutedd Cape... you can either continue around the circuit or return to Grassy Cape for the journey back

Great walk with amazing views! We walked quickly and finished in 1hr45m stopping to read signs and appreciate the view - 2h30m would be plenty of time. Lots of steep sections, no rest areas. If you don’t like heights, this is NOT the walk for...More

This short day walk-around 2.5 hours is just great. It's best in my view to walk anticlockwise heading up the forested hill. You then track a lovely lookout from which you can descend on the cape edge with glimpses of ocean view.
